    Working with really great GM who kept the store running like a well oiled machine. I never had anything negative to say about this company pre pandemic

    Cons

They never showed their face and and didn’t even answer questions afterward. Lab Supervisors with years and years of experience weren’t even asked if they wanted to work on retail. It was insulting.
